Goulburn Birding.

I stopped at a rest area just before Goulburn on the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. It is the start of winter so there are not many birds around.

Crimson Rosella (Platycerus elegans elegans) adult and juvenile. The adult is fully crimson, while the juvenile has green patches.

There were lots of Crimson Rosellas feeding underneath the pine trees in the park. The last time I was here a couple of years ago, there were lots of Grey Currawongs.

As well as a Grey Shrike-thrush, there was a mob of Brown Thornbills screeching around the bare poplar trees next to the highway.
